Approve Phrases

Approve your content for translation and publication.

Localize detects all phrases on your application; this includes dynamic content on and added to your application (including ajax content, alerts, popups, etc.)

In order to know which phrases you want translated you must approve them for translation. If you do not want a phrase translated we recommend clicking on the No Sign icon; phrases left in pending will also not get translated. Once you've approved a set of phrases, they’ll be moved into the Published bin (or In-Progress bin if this is feature is enabled).

1) Go to the Phrases tab in your project.

2) Under the "Filter By State" tab on the left, click on "Pending". These are the phrases that need to get approved.

3) Click on the Green Check Mark icon to approve the phrase for translation. Click on the No Sign icon if you would like to block the phrase for translation.

Bonus: (1) Use the Select All checkbox to select all phrases on the current page. (2) Then click the "Select all ## phrases" link to select all phrases in the Pending bin.

Then you can take action upon multiple phrases per page or all phrases in the Pending bin.

Once you've approved a phrase from the Pending bin, the phrase moves into Published for translation (or In-Progress bin if this is feature is enabled).

If you turned on automatic machine translations, machine translation will instantly be ordered and added to each phrase.

Then all your active translated phrases will be published live onto your website instantly.

If you do not have automatic machine translations activated, the phrase will not be published live until a translation is added. You can add your own translations or order human translations from one of our third party translation providers.

Advanced In-Progress Workflow

With the 'In-Progress' feature enabled, all proposed translations will await approval for publishing in Needs Review.
